MEDI3043 Year 3 Assessment

Module Overview

This module comprises the objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) at the end of Year 3 and the specific preparation for it. Much of this preparation will occur during the revision period before the OSCE, but the assessment is synoptic which means that learning from other modules (including previous years of the programme) will also be assessed in this context. Therefore, preparation for this examination should be considered to include all the teaching and learning encountered during the programme so far, including clinical experience.
